I was 1 of the lucky 1s if you can say that. I happened to arrive while the girls were still doing their housekeeping duties & the owner was outside on his phone outside of the building. The girls did a great job in cleaning the hostel, however after that it was all downhill.
While checking in I was surprised to find that the cashier was the owners pocket & did not have enough change to give back to me. He showed me the room I would be staying in (booked a 3 bed female dorm) however, there were 5 beds, but didn't think anything of it as 2 of them were at the side appearing to be out of use. I spent the night alone in the room as nobody else checked in. However, with a B&B sign still outside the front door you could still hear the ringing of the door bell every hr or so, with no answer since there were no "staff" in the building.
The 2nd night, to my surprise there was a full room! I introduced myself to the 2 girls "mother & daughter" (who also booked the same room type as me), & found out later they were TOLD to sleep on the double bed. Later on the other 2 people occupying the room came back & to my surprise they were both men considering what I had book. It's not a huge deal as I have stayed in mix dorms before but to pay extra money for a smaller room and not get is annoying.
Later on that night, of course the 2 males made the night worse as they were drinking in the lobby/hallway & our room until the early hours of the morning.
